The Vivienne as Donald Trump in Drag Race UK’s Snatch Game. (BBC)
The Drag Race UK queens tightened their tucks this week for the Snatch Game, and the internet was blown away.
Since RuPaul first announced he was bringing Drag Race to UK shores, fans have been clamouring at the bit for a British version of the legendary game show challenge.
Snatch Game is the challenge that separates the wheat from the chaff, and is a highlight of every season.
With the entire history of British culture to mine, the internet could not wait to see who the queens chose.

Not only did The Vivienne step up her pussy, she grabbed an amazing victory lap. (Ugghh… I’m sorry y’all with the P word but that’s the vernacular of drag and tRump!) #SnatchGame #DragRaceUK https://t.co/xynTnRonB0

In the end, Sum Ting Wong was asked to sashay away, to the devastation of her die-hard fans.
